Well, I looked pretty close at that picture, and I didn't see any E.T.s in it anywhere. Either you got better eyes than I do, or a more vivid imagination.

Have you had x-rays of your entire body taken to prove to you that you're human? I would guess not. Why? You know you're human so you KNOW you have a brain, stomache, spleen, etc. No proof required. By that reasoning I would say that with the billions of billions of stars in the universe there MUST be life on at least a few planets other than Earth, no matter how the universe came about. I think there's a name for that sort of reasoning.
Well THERE IS life on other planets and it HAS been found.
But the thing is people see life as ( a person like being, or something big that walk blablabla Alien like ) well that is not true at all. Extraterestrial lifeforms may be bacteria or really small beings that might be the size of an ant or smaller AND THAT IS A LIFEFORM !!!!!!
I read some time back that Nasa had found bacteria coming from the outerspace in an meteorite. If you have a bacteria than that means there are lifeforms plus it Gives also the possibility of a larger being(most certainly) and with Trillions of planets out there, there are certainly a lot of planets with lifeforms of any kind. Cuz if a planet has water, and atmosphere, and some limited values of resources ( very important, there might be other ways that a being might evolve than just what we know) than there is possibly life there.

Look at this...found in the lower right hand corner
here (just enlarged - no edit):
2. I have a question similar to what has been raised before. If we can have such an exceptionally clear pic of something that's millions of lightyears away from our galaxy, why can't hubble get close-ups of the hundreds (not sure of the current count) of exo-solar (wrong word maybe) planets we know exist?
